Difficulties in learning to read caused by teachers’ masks

The masks worn by teachers during the Covid-19 pandemic has caused difficulty in learning to read for pupils who find it hard to discriminate language sounds. This has been proved by researchers from the Loria (Lorraine Research Laboratory in Computer Science and its Applications; Université de Lorraine-Inria-CNRS), the Laboratory of Cognitive Psychology (Aix-Marseille University-CNRS) and the University of Geneva. They carried out a study on pupils aged 5 to 7 years which was published on May 12th in electronic format and June 9th in the print journal L’année psychologique/Topics in Cognitive Psychology.

Boosting industrial applications of quantum computing with the European NEASQC project

The NEASQC (Next ApplicationS of Quantum Computing) project led by Atos is made up of 12 multidisciplinary industrial and academic partners from 8 different European countries. The project works on exploring and developing quantum computing applications with NISQ (Noisy Intermediate Scale Quantum) technologies which will be available in the near future.

Colloquium Loria – CELLO team

Next Colloquium will take place on Tuesday, 20th April at 1:30 pm on Teams.

We are glad to welcome the CELLO team, with presentations given by our colleagues Hans van Ditmarsch, Marta Gawek and Mo Liu.

Colloquium Loria: Mathieu d’Aquin

Mathieu d’Aquin, Professor of Informatics specialised in data analytics and semantic technologies at the Data Science Institute and the Insight Centre for Data Analytics of the National University of Ireland Galway, is the next speaker of Loria’s colloquium.

The colloquium will take place on Teams on Thursday, April 1st at 1pm, with a presentation entitled “Data and knowledge as commodities”.

Reinventing computer science for quantum computing

Simon Perdrix, CNRS researcher at Loria was interviewed for the CNRS journal. Read the whole article “Reinventing computer science for quantum computing” on CNRS News’s website.

To revolutionise computing, as the very first quantum computers have raised hopes of doing, researchers must meet exciting challenges, such as writing new informatics, and limiting the many errors still made by these ultra-powerful machines.

At the heart of this global race involving both public laboratories and private multinationals, the quantum computer, envisaged in the early 1980s by Richard Feynman, winner of the 1965 Nobel Prize in Physics, sparked a true revolution. However, amid promises and sensational announcements, it is difficult to know where this technology really stands, and what its actual applications will be. Unlike a classical computer and similar devices such as smartphones, a quantum system does not use binary bits, namely the two values of one and zero. It is based on qubits, which thanks to the unique properties of quantum objects, display an increasing number of different states with the addition of new units. Each extra qubit doubles computing power. However, this firepower is not adapted to all situations.
